Karlsruhe has a very good public transportation system. You can choose either taxi, bus, or one of the trams. If you stay in the city center, the best choice is to get on a tram. During office hours, you don't need a schedule because a tram will arrive every 2 to 10 minutes at your station. Karlsruhe's public transportation is organized by the KVV (Karlsruher Verkehrsverbund).

Therefore, with only one ticket you can use all trams and busses. The different tickets will be described here.

  • You have to cancel your ticket when you get on the tram/bus.
  • At the ticket machines, select your ticket (see above) before paying. You can pay with € 0,05 / € 0,10 / € 0,20 / € 0,50 / € 1,- / € 2,- coins or € 5,- / € 10,- / € 20,- notes at the ticket machines.
  • You can also get the single and 24-hour tickets from the tram/bus driver (4-times ticket at machines only).
  • The above prices are valid for trips in the center of Karlsruhe only. The whole region is divided in a number of different zones, so make sure you get the right ticket when exploring the outer regions.
